Healthy Teenage Son Died After Routine Flu ShotSubmitted by adam1mc on Mon, 11/25/2013 - 16:18
A heartbroken Utah mother shared her story on Fox and Friends this morning following the death of her 19-year-old son.
Chandler Webb became severely ill the day after receiving his first ever flu shot in October. Lori Webb said her son started vomiting and shaking, so she took him to a hospital in Salt Lake City.
One day later he fell into a coma and was taken off life support after 28 days.
Webb now questions whether the routine vaccine was responsible for the death of her son, who was set to depart on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
She says doctors tested her son for many diseases, even rabies, but didn't consider that the flu vaccination could have been a factor until "the very end."
Webb said there's "no doubt" in her mind that if they had focused on the flu vaccine from the start that her son would still be alive.
